Little Rock Air Force Base's Comprehensive Airman Fitness

Comprehensive Airmen Fitness Page Banner

CAF Seal LogoComprehensive Airman Fitness (CAF) is a philosophy and methodology of taking care of people. CAF allows us to ensure that we are taking care of our Airmen and their families, providing for their physical, social, mental and social fitness. The intent is to create and sustain communities on our AMC installations that give Airmen and their families a sense of belonging to the Air Force community, in which they live, work and play.

CAF also intends to strengthen force resilience, helping our Airmen, Air Force civilians and family members become more resilient and better equipped to deal with the rigors of military life. Some indicators include building relationship skills; enhancing deployment/re-integration preparation and support; increasing financial readiness; building hope in the face of adversity; and reducing self-defeating behaviors.

What is Leadership Pathways? Leadership Pathways is an Air Force program that Air Mobility Command has adopted to help support the Comprehensive Airmen Fitness Strategy. Helping agencies across the installation will offer courses/classes that support or focus on one of the four CAF domains (social, physical, spiritual and mental). Many of the courses offered are ones you've seen before on base wingman days or throughout the year, but now they are part of LP (e.g., Dads 101, Vital 90, Bundles for Babies). 

Airmen and their families will now receive LP credit for attending the courses and are recognized at the squadron, group and wing level for their accomplishments. The goal of LP and the integration of CAF-centered courses is to help our Airmen, Air Force civilians and family members become more resilient and better equipped to deal with the rigors of military life. LP courses will help create and sustain communities at Little Rock AFB that give Airmen and their families a sense of belonging to the Air Force community, in which they live, work and play. The courses will encourage help-seeking in a low-stress, classroom environment, helping reduce the stigma associated with seeking help.
